NIAS Press has been very instrumental in supporting and advancing Nordic Asian Studies scholarship, and roughly 40% of its authors have come from the Nordic countries. It has also over the years organised workshops and seminars on publishing. However, because virtually no university-based publisher can survive without institutional support and the Institute has lost its Nordic funding, NIAS Press is closing at the end of the year.
At this talk Editor in Chief Gerald Jackson who started NIAS Press will provide a brief overview of its history and accomplishments as well as relate what is happening to all of the books published by NIAS Press and what this means for their authors. He will also explore the future shape of scholarly publishing as well as offer some practical advice to those planning to publish their research in the various fields of Asian Studies.
This talk is part of Lund University, Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies’ Perspective Asia Lecture Series
Time and Date: November 14, 10:00 to 11:30
